FTTH/B in Rural Areas 2022

The report shows that by September 2021, only 30% of rural inhabitants could enjoy capabilities offered by full-fibre connectivity (compared to the average number of 49% of European households in the EU27+UK region that are covered by FTTH/B networks. The five countries with the highest Rural FTTH/B coverage are Denmark (76%), Latvia (74%), Spain (66%), Romania (62%) and Luxembourg (55%). The report emphasizes that immediate action should be oriented towards the rural regions to eliminate the “white spots”. An aggressive promotion and an intensified support (subsidies, public-private partnerships, etc.) of rural deployments should be carried out to reach every European premise with high-speed fibre-based broadband connectivity.
